• 1 lb dried white cannellini bean

  • 4 cups sliced yellow Onions 3 onions

  • 0.25 cup good Olive Oil

  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced

  • 1 large branch fresh Rosemary 6 to 7 inches

  • 2 quarts chicken stock

  • 1 Bay leaf

  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt

  • 0.5 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    In a large stockpot over low to medium heat, saute the onions with the olive oil until the onions are translucent, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the garlic and cook over low heat for 3 more minutes. Add the drained white beans, rosemary, chicken stock, and bay leaf. Cover, bring to a boil, and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, until the beans are very soft. Remove the rosemary branch and the bay leaf. Pass the soup through the coarsest blade of a food mill, or place in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse until coarsely pureed. Return the soup to the pot to reheat and add salt and pepper, to taste. Serve hot.

Very nice!
Add just a little salt before tasting - should have checked as stock already had salt which made the soup on the salty side - but still very yummy!
